Yet our full-leaved willows are in the freshest green.
Such a kindly autumn, so mercifully dealing
With the growths of summer, I never yet have seen.”
- William C. Bryant

Spirit Library: Integrating & Aligning with your Soul (a message from Kate Spreckley)
We are moving through a seemingly chaotic evolutionary process where the old structures, which contained humanity’s consciousness for thousands of years, are being broken down and dissolved. While these structures collapse our grip on the past loosens allowing for a new paradigm, a new reality, to emerge from within. This new reality is brought forth through the integration of our heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul.

BY JULIE PETERS
In her destruction, Kali allows new things to be born. When we’re oppressed, her rage can give us strength to see past fear and take action.

Inner Journey: WHY? WHY? WHY?
“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez
Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.
Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.
“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

“You can’t build a reputation on what you intend to do.”
Intention is one thing, action is another. Sure, the thought counts, but isn’t it a lot better to have the thought and the follow-through? There are a lot of ideas out there, but the implementation of the ideas is what makes them valuable. Being reliable means taking action, following through on intentions
